A UN panel’s view that Julian Assange is being “arbitrarily detained”, David Cameron’s prospective deal with the EU and the announcement that Friends’ Matt LeBlanc will host Top Gear are the three topics Jimmy and John tackle in this week’s podcast.
The argument that the EU is a cunning scheme by which Germany can finally achieve its ambition of constructing an empire across the breadth of Europe has always struck me as rather cheeky.
On the surface it appears hysterical, and indeed many of its proponents would likely be attacked as such by the ungenerous (and leftwing) critic that came across this suggestion.
…but on the other hand, there is something to it – especially in a week when the German chancellor Angela Merkel has been declared Time’s Person of the Year.
Whilst stepping onto a plane headed to Germany, chancellor George “Gideon” Osborne released some feel-good guff to the press as he attempts to salvage his prime minister’s negotiations with Europe.
John joins Jazza and Jimmy to chat shit about the events of the week. Ill-informed but always having a giggle on the way.
This week the boys touch on the Lords vs Gideon “George” Osborne and the tax credit debacle, followed by an analysis of China’s one child policy, which is now a two child policy. What does that mean for the upcoming superpower?
Finally, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has been granted asylum in the EU. Or has he? It’s all very confusing. Will the Right Dishonourable make it less so? Let’s be fair. Probably not.
